    DESCRIPTION

    Through a series of interconnecting paintings and drawings, poetry and insert leporello book the publication I Build My Own Island explores Pilkington's connections to Sligo. A series of recurring characters inhabit surreal landscapes that evoke lakeshores, seashores and distant mountain ranges. The labyrinth-esque style of the book is echoed in the accompanying essay by Frances McKee.


    “Memory is full of uncertainty for her: every memory mutates in the mind, changing over time, changing in its retelling, drifting further from its origins and becoming something not quite the same as the event it describes. And if memories morph into other stories then what happens to the identities they shape in each of us?”
